Yep, I have finally started a Ko-Fi. I’m doing quite a lot at the moment, including this blog, beta-reading through Fiverr, and editing for/contributing to Dead Head Reviews. I’m also hoping to join the Society for Editors and Proofreaders, as well as perhaps taking a course or two through them to increase my editing skills, hopefully this year.
Thing is, as many people will be aware, in different ways these sort of things all take money. Although I work full-time, I’m not financially secure. I’m currently working on getting out of my overdraft, and the funds from things like Fiverr are contributing a little towards that, but money also needs to go towards maintaining this site. I also can’t take on as much work through Fiverr as I’d like – again, working full-time, and I need some downtime for myself, too.
Anyway! The point being, I know I’m not going to make a whole lot from having a Ko-Fi, but right now I am glad it’s set up and available just in case. So if you do like the random words I somehow string together on my blog, if you enjoy the stuff I do for Dead Head Reviews, please consider visiting my Ko-Fi page. Or sharing it, if you wouldn’t mind.
And of course, if you’re a writer yourself and would like to see what I do through that gig, please feel free to get in touch if you want to discuss it more.
If there are specific reasons you currently wouldn’t donate – if there are ways you think I could improve – please let me know that, too. I write this blog not just myself but for the lovely people who follow me, too, so if there are ways to make that better I’m always opening to listening.
